The Makita BDF452HW Customer Reviews

I am really happy with the Makita BDF452HW drill but the only thing I am not happy about is the battery. The lithium ion batteries have a 3-4 years life span so if you purchase one that has been in stock for a very long time you might have to change one sooner than you expect. –Troy N

The batteries are covered by a one year warranty and so you can have them replaced if it goes belly up in less than one year anyway.

“I was looking for a good cordless drill that did not weigh a ton, but still had a lot of power. I found that the Makita BDF452HW was built to be very light and compact but it still came with a lot of power.” (summarized)

“I needed to do some work around boat docks and so I decided to do a lot of research because I already had experience with a number of different brands in the market. I purchased the Makita BDF452HW about 18 months ago and this is one of the best decisions I ever made. I have been so impressed with how it has been working that I have purchased other tools manufactured by Makita.”  (summarized)
